Get high with AirBear from Origin8 - submitted!

Here's the next offering from us at Origin8, a bright and bouncy action/arcade game called AirBear!

(Not depicted - how hilarious it is when AirBear is reduced to a trampolining severed head )

Draw goo trampolines for AirBear to bounce on and launch him up, up and away! Collect bamboo rings as he climbs to the clouds, but beware of bombs Ė theyíll knock the stuffing out of him! When you want to get down, tap AirBearís head to put on his propeller hat, or else heíll go SPLAT. Can YOU keep the AirBear airborne, or will he end up grounded..?

Play two addictive game modes:

ENDLESS BOUND:
- Going up! Spring up the Skyscraper and try for the highest high score in the world!
- How low can you go? Dive down the perilous Well, but donít hit rock bottom!

HOMEWARD BOUND:
- AirBearís on a mission! Collect lost jigsaw puzzle pieces scattered throughout the house.
- Bounce up through the levels from Basement to Attic and Treetop freedom!
- Hit all the rings and stay in one piece to earn a place on the high score tables!

OTHER FEATURES:
- Intuitive touch and tilt controls for instant pick-up-and-play fun.
- Bright, brilliant graphics, animation, backgrounds and effects.
- Awesome music and sound effects from Earcom.
- Full online high scores and unlockable achievements from OpenFeint.
- Ipod Music Library access (for OS3.0+ users only)

AirBear was submitted to Apple on the 5th November, so it should be approved within a week or two (fingers crossed, touch wood). We expect it to launch at $1.99 or regional equivalent.

Yeah, getting the character right is a huge issue in a game like this. If you like the look of AirBear, check out the MonsterKill monsters. They're also adorable
